Ivermectin is Not a Treatment for COVID-19. I recently published an article on The Conversation following the evidence on ivermectin for COVID-19. While there are studies that suggest it provides some benefit, overall the evidence suggests it does not provide any. This was particularly reported in a randomized controlled trial published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Reports suggesting a net benefit tended to lack the diligence required to place weight on their findings, were not transparent on their methods or were not peer-reviewed. This perspective is echoed by multiple medical associations, from the FDA to the WHO to the American Medical Association.
